Who are the VYFWBP?

We are a friendly community group, run by parents, who meet every Thursday morning in West Bank Park, York. Whatever the weather, school hols included, we spend a couple of hours in the woods and meadows of the Park, doing nature games and crafts, building or making things with materials we find, telling stories and singing songs.

We are open to all - with a contribution of £1 a family (to cover basic equipment) - so if you want to join us, see you on Thursday at 10am at the statue of Queen Victoria, at the top of the Rose Walk. (Bring something simple to share at snack time.)

Appletastic times and Yoga in the woods

It's all go for the young friends this autumn as we embrace the changing of the seasons. Today we had our own Apple Day to celebrate this years apple harvest.  Who knew how much fun we could have rolling apples down the story tree? We also made beautiful apple stars, dunked them in birdseed and hung them in the trees for our feathered friends. Our apple snack time went down a treat with apple pie, apple cakes, apple sauce and, well, apples.

Last week we had a special treat when Laura Potts, a York Iyengar Yoga teacher, lead a yoga session for the children. We all joined in moving our limbs and roaring like lions.

We have lots more excitement in store for you over the coming months. Our fire pit will be coming out for bonfire night (day) and christmas, there will be mushroom hunts, bird feeding, bug hotel building and lots and lots more!
